2008 Mercedes-Benz S550 Problems

HVAC Blower Motor May Fail

The HVAC blower motor may fail. This is commonly caused by water entry through the cabin air filter areas during heavy rain or snow. Failed blower motors should be replaced. Our technicians tell us there is no special fix for this issue at this time.

Engine Performance Problems Due to Crankshaft Position Sensor Failure

The engine may develop a stalling and/or no start condition due to a failed crankshaft position sensor.

Cracked Driveshaft Flex Discs May Cause Driveshaft Movement/Vibration

A vibration felt through the center floor of the vehicle can be caused by driveshaft flex discs, which crack and shred, causing excessive driveshaft movement. Not repairing these can cause damage to the driveshaft center support bearing, or, in the worst case scenario, damage to the transmission or differential.
